A good time to start learning Kurdish

An article at the Israeli news site haaretz.com by Zvi Bar'el published Jul 6, 2014 suggests now might be "a good time to start learning Kurdish."

Bar'el describes how, while Iraq is battling Sunni militants, the Kurds of the northern region have been building huge shopping malls, high-rise residential buildings and airports, a "sign of the enormous prosperity that has been sweeping over the Kurdish district since 2003."

Bar'el also describes the tremendous oil wealth under Kurdish lands, and the agreements being fostered between the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) and its neighbors, such as Turkey and Israel. However, as Bar'el points out, such independent arrangements have "started a stormy political war with the Iraqi government."


KRG President Massoud Barzani, who rules Kurdish lands with his nephew Prime Minister Nechirvan Barzani, recently said that a referendum on independence for Kurdistan could occur within a matter of months, stating that, as Bar'el put it, "independence was a natural right of the Kurdish people."

Bar'el notes that Turkey, once vehemently opposed to Kurdish independence, may have gone through a "historic turnabout." Huseyin Celik, a spokesman for the ruling political party in Turkey, stated recently, "If Iraq is divided and it cannot be avoided, they [the Kurds] are our brothers."

In a startling revelation, Bar'el concludes his article by citing the position of the Syrian Kurds: "Salih Muslim Muhammad, head of the Kurdish Democratic Union Party -- which controls Syria's Kurdish region -- [...] established an unofficial autonomous Kurdish region in Syria..."

While Bar'el doubts Muhammad "will want to unify with the Kurdish region in Iraq", the idea that this could even be a possibility has incredible prophetic implications, as Jeremiah's prophecy of doom on the "land of the Chaldeans" sees three "nations" of the "Medes" -- who are today the Kurds of Kurdistan -- rising together to battle the Chaldeans -- modern-day Iraqis.  While Barzani and his former rival Jalal Talabani, who represented the Iraqi and Iranian factions of the Kurds, had set aside their differences to form a coalition government under the unity Kurdistan flag in 2003, the third faction, the western Syrian/Turkish Kurds, the Median nation of "Ararat" mentioned in Jeremiah's prophecy, has yet to join their Kurdish brethren in a call for a unified independent nation.

Could this article by Bar'el be revealing the beginnings of the joining of the three nations of the Medes, the Ararat, Minni (Mannaeans) and Ashkenaz (Adiabenes), the Anatolian, Mesopotamian and Persian arms of the nations of the Kurds?

Is Jeremiah's prophecy of doom on Babylon coming true in our time?

If the cities if Iraq burn, and the reconstructionists abandon her in admitted failure and frustration, look for a coming war between whatever is left of Iraq and her neighbor to the north, the coalition nations of the Medes, the Kurds of Greater Kurdistan, the Median factions of Ararat, Minni and Ashkenaz -- Anatolian (Syrian/Turkish Kurds), Mesopotamian (Iraqi Kurds) and Persian (Iranian Kurds).
